London and Middlesex / Major Thomas Bayly
« on: Sunday 29 April 12 13:03 BST (UK)  »
Thomas Bayly was born in England in 1779 and served in the British Army in Egypt and India.  Charles Bayly was born in Hamwell Middlesex in 1776.  Trying to establish if they were brothers.

Other Countries / India - Thomas Birt Bayly

Need confirmation that Thomas Birt Bayly was born in Bombay in 1801 and that his parents were Thomas Bayly and Lydia Hammond.  Where did Thomas Snr and Lydia come from and where were they married?

Other Countries / Broken Hill, Northern Rhodesia

In the early to mid 1900's, several of my ancestors moved from South Africa to the Copper Belt in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia).  I'm sure they are all buried in or near Broken Hill.  How do I get death certificates and could anyone visit the cemetary to take photos of tombstones with the names Povall and Williams on.  I think they were farmers so presume they could be buried on their farms.   How does one get info from the Zambian Government?

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / John Bartlett - missionary

My ancestor, John Bartlett was born in Hampshire in 1788 then in 1811 was sent to South Africa by the London Mission Society.  He married Johanna Goeyeman in 1815 and then Susanna Haarhof in 1830.  Need to know who his parents and siblings were.

South Africa / John Bartlett

My ancestor John Bartlett was born in Hampshire in 1788 and in 1811 was sent to South Africa by the London Mission Society.  He had children by wife Johanna Goeyeman as well as Elizabeth Haarhof.  My grandmother Marianne Bartlett born in 1894 in Britstown South Africa, was a descendant of John Bartlett.  Would like to know Marianne's parents names.

South Africa / Marianne Bartlett Bowie

My grandmother Marianne Bowie nee Bartlett died in Bloemfontein in 1928 and I presume she's buried in the Church of England section of the old Bloemfontein cemetary.  Her husband was Ritchie Taylor Bowie and her son was Norman James Bowie (my father).  I believe Marianne also had a daughter.  Would love to know her name as well as any other relatives she may have had.

Glamorganshire / Williams/Povall Cardiff
« on: Sunday 27 November 11 10:36 GMT (UK)  »
My grandparents, Rosina Williams and John William Povall married in the Parish of St. Andrew, Cardiff on 6 April 1885.  Rosina and twin sister Susey, were born in Weston Super Mare in 1866 and I think John was born in South Africa in 1858.  John's father was also John, and Rosina's father was Samuel Williams.  Why did they marry in Wales and what were their mother's names.  Rosina and John named one of their sons Arthur Lindwall Povall.  I presume Lindwall is a family name - any connection would be appreciated.

South Africa / Povall/Lindwall
« on: Sunday 20 November 11 12:12 GMT (UK)  »
One of my grandmother's brothers was called Arthur Lindwall Povall.  The name Lindwall seems to come from Sweden. In the SA records there is the death of Arthur Tunstall Povall.  I suppose the transcriber could have mis-read the name.  I am trying to make the connection between the Povalls, some of whom were born in South Africa and Lindwall.  I presume it would be the surname of one of the mothers.

Lanarkshire / Bowie/Gray

William Bowie born 1806 died in Old Monkland in 1878.  Widower of Helen Gray.  When did she die and who were her parents?.  Williams father was also William and his mother was Margaret Pollock.  Any further details most welcome.
